More than 200,000 people from west London have signed a petition demanding a second EU referendum - but Prime Minister David Cameron has ruled out having a second vote.
The fallout from last week’s EU referendum is just getting started, but millions of people across the country are desperate for a second chance at deciding the UK’s European fate, including thousands of Londoners.
As many as 200,067 people from the west London boroughs have signed a petition backing proposals for a referendum re-run should the result not be 60-40 in either direction or based on a turnout of less than 75%.
Despite being comfortably the most popular online petition in parliament’s history, Prime Minister David Cameron made it clear we must respect what the country have chosen.
On a national scale, the Leave vote won with 52% of the vote from a 72% turnout, meaning another referendum would be called based on this criteria.
The 200,067 signatures from west London works out as 9% of the area’s population, far above the national average rate of 5.3%.
People from Wimbledon are the keenest in west London on a second referendum with 14% of the population signing while people while those in Hayes and Harlington are least phased by the Brexit result, at 3.7%.
As many as 3.6 million people have signed the petition demanding a second go at a referendum on the UK’s place in the EU.
Any petition that attracts 100,000 signatures on Parliament's website automatically gets considered for a debate in the House of Commons.
Parliament have already removed 77,000 false signatures from the petition and, with no formal identification required to sign up, it is difficult to know just how significant it is that so many people have signed it.
It is not the only petition to have circulated heavily around the city - calls for London to become independent from the UK have reached near the 170,000 signatories mark.
In a business meeting on Tuesday (June 27) however, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said a London divided from the rest of the country is not the correct approach - but more powers should be given to the city to protect it from any potential economical crisis .
